Environment Act 2000

Measures to be taken against firms: Environment Minister

The Act is set to be reviewed in the coming weeks, says Minister for Environment and Conservation, John Pundari.

Pundari said he has given instructions to immediately work on the review of the act to make changes that will ensure the conservation of the environment, which is also in the best interest of the people.

The minister was referring to fines and disciplinary actions against companies or organisations that breach the laws set under the environment act.
